I never knew that things like this were covered by insurance. Also, now the issue is with proof. I had the car junked already. I'll see what I can do about a DOT claim though.

I doubt that I'll have as much luck with any other car. I've said it before and I'll say it again. It was mostly the car. There was something seriously wrong with the car that worked in my favor. The car was always feeling extremely underpowered. I think that the mixture was extremely lean.

Alot. The engine and tranny were completely unsalvagable, and both are extremely expensive on that particular car. That and I really need the extra room of a hatchback because of all of the gear I move for work, and am not very good mechanically.
